All of the week's hot casting news in one fell swoop ...
• Ellen Page will be starring in "Into the Forest," the story of two teenage sisters living in rural Northern California as society seems to decay and collapse around them. As if that should alarm the girl who saw buildings fold in on themselves and stuff in "Inception." [The Playlist]
• Another thesp is packing his bags for "Sin City." Josh Brolin, who appeared in director Robert Rodriguez's "Planet Terror," will be playing the central role of Dwight (played by Clive Owen in the original film) in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For." Now how about some casting news on the film's femme fatale, Ava Lord, already? [MovieWeb] Get More »
What do you get when you pair one ridiculously good looking person with another ridiculously good looking person? "Paranoia." Wait. What?!
In the flick, adapted by Jason Dean Hall and Barry Levy from the Joseph Finder novel of the same name, Hemsworth stars as Adam Cassidy, a corporate peon who finds himself transformed into the pawn in a company spy game. Hemsworth's character tries to climb the corporate ladder by way of some illegal and unfortunate maneuvering and then is suckered into spying on a rival biz to avoid punishment by his boss. He has a one-night-stand with Heard's character but later finds her instrumental in his forced espionage scheming.

Amber Heard, the blonde who turned up the heat in "The Rum Diary," is at it again. This time, the bombshell is in talks to become the latest femme fatale in the Robert Rodriguez action flick, "Machete Kills," the sequel to the 2010 Grindhouse hit "Machete." (Insert men cheering here.)
According to Variety, Danny Trejo will return as the titular lead, along with beauties Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez. Oh, and Mel Gibson may be stopping by. In other words, Trejo is one lucky ex-federale. Get More »
UPDATE: Jake Gyllenhaal won't be replacing Dominic Cooper in the dialogue-free crime drama, "Motor City," after all. Deadline reports that negotiations fell through due to scheduling conflicts.

Jake Gyllenhaal just has one of those faces, you know?
The guy almost doesn't even have to talk at all in his movies because his super-expressive face pretty much says it all. And according to Variety, that makes him the perfect pick to replace Dominic Cooper in the upcoming dialogue-free action film "Motor City." Get More »
Everyone knows blondes have more fun. Right? Has anyone ever really researched this, or did someone (a blonde, we're betting) just make that up and say it enough times that eventually people accepted it as truth?
Well, wonder no more, because we've done some (very scientific) research -- and things are looking up for ladies with tresses from chestnut to chocolate and everything in between. So as Katherine Heigl prepares to hit the big screen as a brunette in "One for the Money," we at NextMovie have compiled our own list of Hollywood golden girls who have dabbled on the dark(er) side.
Earlier this year she took a spin with Nicolas Cage in "Drive Angry," but now Amber Heard's peeling out and heading towards the "Motor City."
Deadline reports that the ultra-hottie beat out several other young hopefuls for the chance to burn rubber alongside "The Devil's Double" star Dominic Cooper in the gettin' outta jail and takin' revenge flick. "Motor City" became a priority project at Warner Bros. when Albert Hughes ("The Book of Eli") signed on to direct the script by Chad St. John, which originally contained no dialogue.
Whether this will still be a "silent movie" (presumably still with audible gunshots and blood splatters) remains to be seen, as the writer suggested to Scriptshadow that he was asked to write a version containing dialogue for Dark Castle producer Joel Silver. Get More »
Amber Heard might just be the luckiest girl in Hollywood.
OK, so her big show on NBC, "The Playboy Club" was one of the first series canceled this season, but that doesn't change the fact that she's a lucky duck. Just look at her -- she's got the hair, she's got the face, she's got the body, she's got the chops and she's got the social awareness.
Don't worry -- we're jealous right there with ya.
As the leaves turn their autumnal colors and the air gets brisker, we like to warm ourselves by the fire of scorching hot babes burning up the screen with hotness!!!
Ahem. With all due respect, coming up this fall is an amazing lineup of actresses, poised to deliver what look to be some of the best performances of the year. These ladies are in it to win it, and by "it" we mean box office loot, Oscars, and a special place in our hearts.
School is back in session and the summer movie season has wrapped, which means the pop-culture focus temporarily shifts to television until the annual slate of Oscar contenders and holiday blockbusters hit theaters.
This fall, though, you'll notice the new television season has a host of big movie stars transitioning to primetime, either for the first time, like Luke Wilson, or in a splashy return, like Ashton Kutcher.
While the majority of film actors are headlining high-profile series, a couple of them are lining up for key supporting roles in ensemble casts. Take a look at these 15 familiar faces and find out where you can catch them on the small screen this year. Get More »
Finally, after years of waiting, Johnny Depp is back in Hunter Thompson territory, but this ain't no trip to Bat Country.
After the actor killed it playing Thompson's alter ego Raoul Duke in Terry Gilliam's legendarily bonkers adaptation of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," he befriended the late writer in a big way and made it his mission to bring to life another one of the father of Gonzo's books.
A decade in development purgatory later we have a trailer for "The Rum Diary" (via ComingSoon) that promises a wild alcohol-fueled trip, though not in the same vein as "Fear and Loathing." The book, originally written in the early sixties but not published until 1998, was Thompson's first novel, created before he began tinkering with the signature substances that made him the outlaw journalist he became.
